It's been over a year since I've been here! Things have changed a lot! Here's a new #introduction
I'm Brad, 33, he/him (mostly), in the US midwest, working on space science hardware (as far as I can get from the military-industrial complex)
I want to:
- Live in community with friends
- Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism
Looks like we're getting really close to the "switch" part of this Bait & Switch cycle in technology, with more and more services restricting licenses and/or removing free tiers. Or companies/products disappearing completely!
I get real sad when I think about the amount of effort we've duplicated in developing the same technology again and again over the past 30 years.
My evening of yak shaving:
1. Want to add gitea support to a drone configuration extension. Requires writing 6 functions to pull data from the gitea API
2. See that the gitea API provides no easy way to get this data
3. Oh, looks like I'll need to add to the API and PR gitea
All I wanted was to automatically build stuff from a gitea monorepo 😞
electronics, science, space, bad puns, and one day escaping to the one place that hasn't been corrupted by capitalism.
